If I must live alone, I'd rather do it by myself
For I've never known a mirror to shake it's head and turn and walk away
Lookin' at myself and all the things that I believe in
Left dying in the silence of the things you never say.

I'm sleeping by myself, somehow I've never had you
Oh, I wish I knew the reason, I'm sure there's an answer to it all
Talking to myself is something else that I've grown used to
One-sided conversations with a narrow-minded wall.

Talk to me, oh, can't you see
That I can't bear to give my dream to someone
Who would stand and let it fall.

A prisoner to myself, I'm the only one that holds me
In one-sided conversations with a narrow-minded wall.
In one-sided conversations with a narrow-minded wall.
